Thank you for finding me in this exciting (yet a little bit scary) part of my journey!
I'm about to make my first step into the world of self-publishing, and I'm kind of wondering why it's taken me so long! But, here I am, attempting to release a small book of Poetry and Short stories.
This book will be a collection of 20+ poems and 5+ short stories, some that I wrote many years ago and re-worked for the purpose of this, and some that have been created solely for this.
As you can see, I will be releasing this under the name Evelyn Knightley (Evelyn being one of my middle names,) this has always been the plan and anything I publish in the future will also be under that name- just to save any confusion there.
I've spent many years thinking I know what life is about, but I have recently dropped out of University in order to dedicate myself to writing, I've started seeing a little bit more of the world and I'm starting to believe in life a little bit more; and that's got me thinking; "I haven't lived at all."
That has led to the creation of this collection. It's not about growing up, or living. It's simply about 'being,' in whichever way you have to, or whichever way you choose.
Now onto the funding needed for the book:
The money raised will largely go towards registering myself as a Publisher in order to obtain an ISBN number and towards the printing of the books.
Any extra raised above the £500 will go towards creating limited edition copies of the book, complete with hardback and artwork.
I will be keeping you updated every step of the way, mostly because the prospect of this makes me more excited than a kid at Christmas- so that's pretty excited!
As soon as I've firmly decided on the content of the book (I'm about 95% there!) I will post the name of the poems and short stories that will be in the book.

Risks and challenges
There are no risks involved with this project (apart from embarrassment if everybody hates the book.)
I anticipate a few challenges along the way as this is my first time self-publishing, however I have done sufficient research in all areas so I whilst there's a possibility this may take longer than I originally anticipate, I'm confident that I have the ability and support to over come any difficulties.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
